Gallery of Mars art from 1895 British boys’ interplanetary adventure novel

I have compiled a gallery on Flickr of six beautiful pieces of Mars art, all black-and-white illustrations by Captain Arthur Layard, that were published in Fifteen Hundred Miles an Hour (1895), a British boys' interplanetary adventure novel about a flight to Mars in an electrically powered spacecraft.

Pictured: Princess Volinè of Mars.
